The Good: Some shots look cool.
The Bad: Lame and boring as fuck.
The Bottom Line: Why can't anyone make at least one decent video game movie? Just one...
I swear this is one of the worst films I have ever seen.
Seriously. The amount of flak this video game adaptation gets I was expecting Mortal Kombat: Annihilation or Silent Hill: Revelations. I prepared myself for complete and utter bollocks and what I got instead was a very expensive B-Movie which doesn't really feel much like Max Payne.
To say the acting is poor here would suggest that the persons on screen are actually doing any of that acting stuff to begin with. This is essentially a group of people, sleep-reading lines from a bland and cliched script.
The only actor here that managed to keep my attention was Olga kurylenko and she's barley even in the movie. Poor Marky Mark just isn't gruff, cynical or dickhead'ish enough to portray Max Payne.…
Maybe one day, one day, Hollywood will get the video game to movie transfer right. This adaptation of Max Payne makes me really wonder if that's ever gonna happen though. I never played the original game but knew enough of the premise going in - but surely the game was better than THIS? And by this, I mean perhaps the dullest action movie of the decade. It doesn't help that Mark Walhberg - usually reliable - spends the movie looking like a constipated owl, or that his (and every other) character is utterly one-dimensional. Nor does it help wasting cuteness like Mila Kunis on a role she could have stayed and home and done on the phone, making Amaury Nolasco's…
This has to be the worst video game Adaptation that i'v ever seen.
No plot? Okay. This movie sucks then. F
An adaptation of a hard boiled noir thriller console game with a complex protagonist, compelling story, explosively fun action, a journey into the mind of a tormented soul seeking revenge.
Unfortunately the movie used none of that. Mark Wahlberg would be decent casting had they actually adapted the source material.
2008 was not a kind year to marky mark (I couldn't finish this it was so bad, at least the happening was so bad it was funny, this was just bad)
Another highly underrated piece.
I personally like both the games and the film. My friends knew nothing about Max Payne in general but really liked the film too. It seems to work in both ways. I have no idea of where the common hate comes from. I don't see a messy nor boring plot or bad performances. I see a captivating crime film, a cool thriller, a well made vengeance story that also looks and sounds absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't help but be enthusiastic about almost everything during the whole length. And this was the fourth watch.
Some reviewers are really pissed off by the casting. Lupino (originally a white male) is played by a latino. Bravura (originally a white…
Eine der besseren Shooter-Verfilmungen.
Insgesamt aber dann doch zu stark abweichend.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Seriously, how do the drug work? Is there a special component in the drug that makes you see angels/demons? Or is there a mass-psychotic outbreak and just so happens to be the things that they see?
Anyway, if you like to see an one-dimensional, uninspired Mark Wahlberg being angry (but deep down he is really really really sad) this one is for you.
My review -- this action/crime/dark/science-fiction/adventure film title is now on DVD and somehow this film title made $50 million profit at the box office. The basic storyline is this, the audience meets this individual known as Detective Max Payne which he is seeking some kind of revenge against the person or organization that killed his wife and child.
Well I know, I know I am meant to be unbiased which I will try to be in this review. But in my defense what am I meant to say when I come up against film titles of this very poor quality. I mean there is absolutely nothing I like about this project in the slightest, the character development is [essentially what…
Looks cool and stylish, but the story doesn't carry one along.
All the films mentioned by name in Kim Newman's definitive encyclopedia of horror films, Nightmare Movies. Well worth a read.…
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
